Mita dc 1860 copy machine

Copies are coming out with a streak down the sides of the pages. Have cleaned platen, transfer charger, and main charger according to directions.
None of those solved the problem.

Re: mita dc 1860 copy machine

If there is not any physical problem on the Machine, just clean the Cleaning Blade of the Developer. I think that it shall remove the streaks on the sides as well the middle.

Kyocera Mita 2050 there are streaks of toner appearing on the pages printed.

If you send a print job or print a report from the copier and there is no streaks then the problem is most likely the thin **** glass to the left of the large glass. It just needs to be claened.

If the streaks are happening when printing and copying then the problem is most likely your drum unit (MK-410) or possibly the fixing unit (FU-410), the fixing unit is the one that gets hot.

As the drum gets old it can cause print/copy issues and the cleaning blade that cleans the drum gets to the point it doesn't clean the drum properly causing streaks.

The heat roller has a teflon coating on it and as the roller gets older the teflon starts to come off and can effect prints/copies.

The drum unit should be replaced every 150,000 pages and the fixing unit every 300,000 pages on the KM-2050.

I hope this is helpful,

Mita all copies have clean, thin, black streaks

Needs a clean around the fuser area. You may see a build up of toner near the rollers which is being drawn in. There's an outside chance that the lens needs cleaning also.

Black stripe in middle of copies 1/2'' thick whole page

I have a BROTHER MFC- 8860DN that makes black streaks on copies

If this is only happening with copies and not straight prints, it is possible that the problem is with the scanning unit. Use the soft cloth to clean the scanner area to the left side of the machine where pages are scanned when run through the page feeder. A spec of dust or other debris in this area will appear as a streak along the length of the page.

If it occurs on all prints, You may need to replace the drum or clean the fuser unit.

Scanner/Printer imageCLASS MF6550

Does it do it on prints aswell as copies?

If so open up the Left hand side door if you peer inside at the fuser (hot bit) can you see any damage. if so needs replacement.

Also could be the drum, look in the same area at the green/blue cylinder, these do up to approx 30,000 pages.

Hope this helps.

HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one machine makes black streaks

The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the orginal. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out on the glass, just clean with a dam cloth with water or windex..... Good Luck

Black streaks across the page

hello,first of all,make a copy true the adf,and the next on the platen glass,if both copys are good,then the problem is inside the machine,i.e.drum unit or fuser roller damage.
if the strikes only occurs,by using the adf,then cleaning the scanner platen glass,it is the small glass unit!!! on the left side,from the big platen glass..

good luck Sjeuf

Cannon ImageRunner 3300 streaking faxes/copies

First, do the streaks only appear on copies and faxes made using the document feeder? If yes, the thin strip of glass just left of the large platen probably has has a speck of dirt on it. The speck shows as a streak when the page scans over it. Clean with window cleaner, Viva towels and elbow grease. If you shine a flashlight on the glass its easier to find the specks.

If the streaks appear and you are not using the feeder tray, then call for service.
